My personal favorite is from 10/2/80, and from 77 I am partial to 5/9 5/21 and 5/4.

Furthur played a beautiful version on 7/16 in Bethel

Buffalo '77 is fantastic; certainly among the very best post hiatus versions.

The one from Dick's picks 20 is well sung by Jerry and Donna and has some fine piano and bass work.Here's an audience version:

I really love the on on 10/30/71. Someone else will have to link it, would take forever if I tried to find it.

I’m really drawn to the simplicity, naturalness and slightly ragged folksiness of the very earliest ones. This may sound fairly dorky, but it’s almost like Jerry being Carole King. That, of course, qualifies as dorky because I like Jerry infinitely more than Carole King – no aspersions cast on the fine Ms. King, of course – but I’m thinking of the way the early ones focus around the “realness” of Jerry’s voice and just a little instrumentation, in this case mainly the guitars and bass.

I guess that puts me in a different camp from folks who might say (perfectly reasonably) that it’s one where a more life-worn Jerry sounds more touching, or who just prefer the more complex-sounding, more developed later versions.

Anyway, I’m really attached to 12/5/71:

http://www.archive.org/details/gd1971-12-05.fm.matera.100316.sbeok.flac16

I gather that’s less than two months after its debut,

http://www.archive.org/details/gd1971-10-19.sbd.miller.114351.flac16 ,

which apparently was also Keith’s. I meant to check this show out and haven’t yet, so this serves as a nice reminder.

The version from the 11/7/71 show in the thread below is also wonderful, particularly the way it’s so driven by a clear, clean Phil:

They get a lot more “sophisticated” later, and that’s just beautiful, too, like 7/17/76, which in case you haven't heard (though you probably have) goes into a lovely sweet jam that then builds and intensifies into a TOO jam.

Incidentally, I hope you're doing OK, RB. Perhaps a severe toxic reaction to Troll and Multiple Personality exposure? I was masochistically curious enough to do a ratio count on a long recent thread, and came up with a roughly 5 to 3 ratio of "Likely Real Person" posts to "Likely Troll/Multiple Personality" posts ... Bad enough, but then if we assume all Troll/MPs in that thread are one individual, it becomes a 19:3 ratio in favor of posts by the Troll/MP. If it's two individuals, that's about 9:3 in favor of the Troll/MP. In any case, a pretty toxic environment.

Well, Comes a Time is an excellent antidote to many ailments, whether of the soul or just of the troll ... be well :-)

7.17.76 is the one that first came to my mind so I'll second Althea's recommendation.

I have to agree with AR and wineland, 7/17/76 is the first version that comes to mind. I also love those nascent versions from October '71 - Northrop Auditorium 10/19 especially.

Before I heard that 7/17/76 version from the Orpheum, sf, for many years this version from 5/16/78 was my favorite:

http://www.archive.org/details/gd78-05-16.akg.weiner.8333.sbeok.shnf

This airy audience recording from the Uptown Theater in Chicago seems to add to the emotional depth of Jerry's singing and playing. The sparseness of the space preceding it sets it up nicely, and the labored tempo - not unlike the Ship of Fools earlier in the set - just adds to the pathos. His plaintive phrasing of the lyrics and his hesitant, then soaring, guitar solos - both mid song and in the outro, always works for me. There is a SBD version that was featured in the 'Tapers' Section' a few years back, that starts mid Drums > Space > Comes a Time > Sugar Magnolia. The SBD is nice, but for raw emotion, the audience is the one.

I also second AltheaRose's comment "I’m really drawn to the simplicity, naturalness and slightly ragged folksiness of the very earliest ones." And I wholeheartedly agree that "Comes a Time is an excellent antidote to many ailments", and a simple stalwart salve for the soul and mind.
